    It's looking like a Microsoft Store will be your best confirmed bet, until we figure out which Verizon Store's are actually going to carry it, if any.

    My intent is to buy it from the Microsoft Store... IF... they allow me to do so online when it is available on the 20th. If not, I'll go to Verizon.

    The only brick and mortar stores that sell the Icon would be Verizon and Microsoft. Best Buy will get them but probably no sooner than a month after release. Then you have like Newegg and amazon and whatnot if you go online.

    Does anyone know how much it will likely cost off contract?

    I’m just curious what the point of buying off contract is? If the phone cost 200 on contract and 550 off contract, it doesn’t make much sense. The most you have to pay to end a contract early on Verizon is 350, so why not just spend 200 bucks on the phone and if you want out early then spend the extra 350 down the road. I understand if you want to hold on to unlimited data, but other than that i see no reason. Not trying to call anyone out, I’m just genuinely curious?

    Well, if you are mid contract or want to keep unlimited data, then you have no choice but off contract. And like 95% of us are in that position right now lol.

    keeping unlimited data, which is what i'm doing, and also not being eligible for an upgrade is another reason

    Quick reply is because I'm in college and I'm not the owner of my plan. I'm mid contract and I don't want to add more time or pay to remove the contract. I don't have unlimited data, its just easier, id have to pay pretty much the same to cancel and buy on contract, and then I got another 2 years to wait. This way when my contract ends I won't be in dire need of a new phone and can just wait for Verizon next flagship.

    I really want this phone, I'll probably wait till it's dropped a few hundred and buy it on Ebay.

    How can you "just spend 200 bucks on the phone" if you're mid-contract? If I canceled early at $350 and made a new contract, it would cost exactly the same to just buy the phone outright. This would then set me back another two years. If I buy off contract at $550, I'll still be able to get a new phone in about a year and sell this badboy to put towards my next phone, whatever that may be. I honestly probably won't do this since I don't feel like throwing $550 down on a phone when my 8X is in pristine condition, but it's worth dabbling in the idea.

    Go to Microsoft Retail, tell them you go to college/university, and they'll give you 10% off.

    $549 - 10% ($54.90) = $494.10

    Does anyone know if the Microsoft Store will allow online orders, off contract once the phone is in open release on the 20th? I asked that question to the Microsoft Chat Rep who told me he finds out information at the same time I do... He said "they tell me nothing."

    Could you please tell us the source of this information? I spoke to MS Store yesterday, they said they are not selling it off-contract. Moreover, they claimed the phone will be Verizon SIM-locked

    Exact opposite of what the MS Store near me said. Although they didn't know the price off contract they said they would accept $25 as a down payment towards off contract price on the 20th.

    Maybe they told you that because in their system it only shows them the on-contract price. The lady I spoke to said to call back tomorrow when they will probably have more info.

    Thank you. By any chance do you have similar info whether it is going to be locked/unlocked? I read in one of the reviews it would be SIM unlocked, but without source reference.
